5.1. Startup Issues

When initiating any SimCenter desktop application on Windows, you may encounter an error indicating a missing Visual C/C++ runtime library, as depicted in figMissingCRT. This issue arises due to the absence of necessary runtime components that the application depends on for execution.

To resolve this, install the Visual C/C++ redistributable package by executing vc_redist.x64.exe, which is provided within the application’s installation directory. This step ensures that all required runtime libraries are available, allowing the application to start without errors.
